Drama Geek Studio Presents the Award Winning Drama Proof, 
at Sussex County Community College’s Performing Arts Center

Drama Geek Studio performs Proof at SCC PAC on March 24- 26. (seated) Vicky Reed of Sparta, Jim Berkheiser of Vernon, (standing) Dan Loverro of Parsippany, Allison Ognibene of Sparta Credits: Drama Geek Studio

NEWTON, NJ - David Auburn’s Tony award and Pulitzer Prize winning drama Proof will be presented by Drama Geek Studio at Sussex County Community College’s Performing Arts Center on Friday, March 24 at 8 pm, Saturday, March 25 at 8 pm and Sunday, March 26 at 2 pm.  Directed by Joshua Reed of Sparta. Proof explores the unknowability of love as much as it does the mysteries of mathematics.

On the eve of her birthday, Catherine, played by Vicky Reed of Sparta, a young woman who has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert played by Jim Berkheiser of Vernon, must deal not only with his death but with the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire played by Allison Ognibene of Sparta, and with the attentions of Hal played by Dan Loverro of Parsippany, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that Robert left behind.

As Catherine confronts Hal's affections and Claire's plans for her life, she struggles to solve the most perplexing problem of all: How much of her father's madness-or genius- will she inherit?
